|Incipit||History is a seed; it is invisible to those who live in the present. It is intangible matter. The day hides the seed between the folds in the soil, through the passing of time, underneath the send. The soil shelds that seed, and patience teaches it to ripen. Man grows it. His gaze makes it mature, his spirit feeds it.|
For those who love to immerse themselves in nature by discovering the unusual and unknown essences of its beauty.

A summary of the history of our University from its foundation to the early 2000s.
Available only in Italian, Il collezionista di mostri share the story of Antonio Vallisneri, one of the greatest exponents of the scientific culture of the eighteenth century. With his method of research and experimentation, taken from the Galilean method, Vallisneri uses real experiences, an attributes them the fundamental role needed to observe nature. Vallisneri reveals the baselessness of many theories handed down from antiquity with irony and lightness. The book takes the reader, accompanied by his son Tonino and the young Cencia, to meet a somewhat bizarre man who never stops working. This man, a great scientist, is dedicated to making everyone aware of the wonderful world of nature. The book included in-depth information on Vallisneri, his method of investigation, his scientific discoveries, and his precious collections that gave life to the museums of the University of Padua.

A very young apprentice arrives in Padua to meet Master Jan Stephan van Calcar, a pupil of Titian. A stunning task awaits him; he must complete the drawings for Andrea Vesalius, the scientist in the mist of writing a great anatomical dissertation. The young apprentice is superstitious and prefers to work with paintbrushes and colours, not with corpses. Over time, Vesalius explains the science behind these drawings but the boy remains concerned. A murder involving the family of a girl who is dear to the young apprentice remains unsolved, and it is Vesalius who solves the mystery!
